Date:1/3/2012

SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The Ministry of Health and Welfare (Minister Rim Che-Min) and Korea Health Industry Development Institute (Ko Kyung-Hwa) announced that a 19-year-old woman, Tan Hui-Linn, has been invited to South Korea as part of the government's Medical Korea project and will receive surgery at the JK Plastic Surgery Center located in southern Seoul.

Tan Hui-Linn's life that was once full of hopes shattered on Oct. 24, 2009, the date when her horrific incident occurred. Her father, who suffered from mental illnesses, poured hydrochloric acid on her sleeping mother and leaving her dead. Tan Hui-Linn, who was sleeping beside her mother, lost one of her eyes and received severe burns across her body, which also left her face unrecognizable. Although her emotional wounds have healed up for the past two years, she still receives enormous stress from her lost face with the stares of people.

On top of running fund-raising campaigns in Malaysia to help Hui-Linn, YB Jeff Ooi, the senator of her village, searched for advanced institutions that could recover her lost face.

As luck would have it, the senator came across the Korean JK Center's "New Face New Dream" charity project. After several video meetings and reviews of her medical records, this Korean medical center decided to treat Hui-Linn.

Hui-Linn, arrived in Seoul on Dec. 13 and was scheduled to stay until January 2012. Then, Tan Hui-Linn will receive medical treatment surrounding her eyebrows, eyes, chin, and the bottom lip with additional treatment to be proceeded. The airfare and costs for the sojourn will be paid by the funds raised in Malaysia while the JK Center will give the surgeries pro bono. The Korean Government's Medical Korea project will finance her nursing fee and tourism cost.

Medical Korea, the nation's medical brand, was launched its medical charity program in 2010 to share Korea's success and know-how in the medical indust
